Ongoing Projects

Clinic Support Inititiative

This is a discussion-based project which takes place every 3 months for students in their clerkship year. MS4s lead small-group discussions centered around themes such as "vulnerability," "empathy," and "burnout" in either their homes or the medical school.


Service Initiative

GHHS helps to coordinate student-run service initiatives both during the national spring GHHS service week and throughout the year. Current programs and partnerships include:

  • In-home nutritional visits with local families
  • Running with the Achilles International group to (runners with disabilities)
  • Collecting and distributing warm clothes for the homeless in conjunction with Project HOME
  • "Tell Me More" program to spend time with patients on geriatrics units at Penn.

We welcome any volunteers to join us in this work!
